    2004 yamaha fx ho 1100 cc HELP with one question

    Hi im looking to buy two of these pwc's tomorrow, while both have the same engines, one sounds real nice with a turbo whine, runs faster and takes off quick.

    on the other one, theres no real turbo whine sound and is a bit slower than the other any ideas? they both seem to run good and are stock with 120 hrs on them

    Check compression, dirty oil or water in it, dirty air filter or aftermarket flame arrester with velocity stacks? also check impeller/wear ring clearance, etc. Maybe pay someone to check out before purchasing?

    I'd be more worried about the "turbo whine".

    I'd be paying somebody to look these over carfully

    It'll be 150 well spent
